i'm with you Tyler - bad experienses here too with labels. - sharpies rule - just use a paper cd insert with the jewel case and you dont need the cd label.

There is also something called LightScribe. Turn the CD upside down and use your printer to put text on the label side as if you were doing it it on paper. No more peeling the donuts off a sheet and sticking them on a disk.

The new LightScribe disks have a thicker silver gray color and no brand name on the surface. You can't see thru them like the old disks that went out of circulation a year ago.

A thicker coating also means that you won't have as much trouble with a sharpie bleeding thru the surface either...

easy to say direwolf! Your penmanship is excellent on the CD'z u sent me. I can't tell you how many times I've bungled up using a CD sharpie!! Then i have to carefully use isopropyl alcohol to clean up my mess!
LightScribe sounds good, I'll have to look into it.
Here's some for OP3 >> http://www.wulfware.de/covers/Index3/GD771002.htm

thanks for the compliment :) i am always told i write like an artsyfartsy girl though (no offense to the wonderful women on this site)

only problem is, i cant print small case letters anymore (seriously) kinda weird, but ive been printing all capitals for over 20 years and virtually have major problems printing the lower case letters. i crack myself up when i even make an attempt (musta been too much acid in my younger days).
